“One friend, one person who is truly understanding, who takes the trouble to listen to us as we consider a problem, can change our whole outlook on the world.”

~E.H. Mayo

We can all think back on a time when we were struggling through a situation and felt completely alone.  In that moment a friend, a family member, a teacher, or a co-worker noticed our state of mind, asked what was going on and listened we explained our situation.  Just that simple act of kindness, to listen to us when we needed an ear made all the difference.  Be aware of those around you today and see if you can be that needed ear for someone who needs to be heard.
